Google Maps has a scale bar at the bottom of the map. When you need to measure a distance horizontally, the scale works well. But at another angle, you’ll have a challenge using it. Instead, easily create radius rings around a point of interest. That makes it simple to measure distances in any direction.
A common request of mapmakers is to show radius rings in various distance increments.

Combining Google Maps with radius rings can give a client a quick look at how much area, or what cities, will be included within the rings. You can quickly produce a radius rings map image at http://www.acscdg.com.
